Blechnum gibbum - Dwarf Fijian Tree Fern

Blechnum gibbum - Dwarf Fijian Tree Fern  (Blechnum gibbum - Dwarf Fijian Tree Fern)

My Dwarf Fijian tree fern is doing so well now that it's getting the bath water. It loves water every day or it'll dry out and die or loose all its leaves. Photo taken March 1, 2018.

It probably would grow outside most of the year there. It loves a lot of water. It's not hardy; however, does best in cooler, shaded conditions.

I've killed so many in years past. This one is more than 10 years old. It's the longest I've had one growing without dying. lol! It cannot dry out even for a little while or it'll die!

This is an evergreen miniature tree fern. It just doesn't like our hot, dry autumn weather. It need copious amounts of water constantly.
